The Jimmy Cake: Tough Love

Written in 2015 as a continuous piece for a one-off performance in The Joinery, a much-loved and badly-missed arts space in Dublin City, Tough Love is part kosmische post-punk dystopia, part time-lapsed motorik stoner rock. Both sides menace and swell, playing with time and space before building to two distinct strains of glorious sonic pay-off. 'Tough Love' is released on the illustrious Penske Recordings on Friday 14th July but will be available to purchase at the show.

The Jimmy Cake formed as a 10-piece group in Dublin, Ireland in 2000 from the fresh remains of local experimental rock noiseniks Das Madman. In that time they have collaborated live with the likes of Damo Suzuki, Iva Bittova & Charles Hayward while slowly drifting over the course of six albums from a pastoral psychedelia to full-on kosmische psych, fully realised on ‘Master’ their 2015 aural colossus. Drawing from the same sonic palette, Tough Love is another serpentine & ecstatic creation from one of Ireland’s most consistently adventurous bands

Patrick Kelleher & His Cold Dead Hands

Patrick Kelleher is an electronic musician, singer and producer based in Dublin. His sophomore album, Golden Syrup, was nominated for a Meteor Choice Music Prize in 2012. Performing as Patrick Kelleher and his Cold Dead Hands, he has provided support for international acts such as Future Islands, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, A Flock of Seagulls and Dan Deacon, and brought his live show to the UK, central Europe, the Balkans, the US and Brazil.

While his output to date has been characterised by ghostly visions of 80s Synth-Pop and New Wave - a kind of Transylvanian Europe Express if you will, his most recent work treads darker, more vigorous ground, drawing inspiration from Acid House and early European Techno, accompanied throughout by intimate vocal melodies.

Patrick frequently collaborates with fellow musician and friend Brian Conniffe (Nurse With Wound).
